boehner says they expect him to be re-elected, but if enough republicans break ranks, it could make the process messy. here's how it works. boehner will need a majority of the house votes cast today to hold his spot. if he fails to get a majority on the first vote, it will go to a second ballot. something that has only happened once in the past century. in 1923 when nine ballots over three days were needed to appoint congressman frederick gillette. now, 433 members are expected to vote today in the house, meaning boehner's magic number is 217. given that 200 democrats who also have votes, 17 republicans would need to defect in order to force that second ballot. now, while boehner would likely capture enough votes in subsequent ballots, it would be a humiliating way for republicans to begin the new session. what about this new class? will they turnover a new leaf? could this be a fresh start for washington?

, who will lead the party? at least here in washington. today house speaker john boehner will likely be elected as the nominal leader of the party of the house. the question, though, can he be an effective leader and an effective speaker. he enters this new congress in a very fragile position. his relationship with the white house is not good. but for all we know, his relationship with mitch mcconnell may not be that good, considering how close house republicans were in leaving senate republicans hanging out to dry a couple days ago. yesterday, the unsubstantiated rumors were rampant that boehner was in so much trouble he might not become speaker. though there may be enough dissenters today to keep the editors of the tabloids happy. boehner has no real challenger and therefore is likely to secure his spot as pespeaker. but only 17 conservatives have to vote against him for us to see the second ballot for speaker since 1923, a message in and of itself. yesterday congressman tom price who says he does not plan to challenge boehner now dismissed questions about whether he might challeng

for failing to protect the kids in newtown. is it legal on both of those stories. plus can speaker boehner say fu to senate majority leader reid? it looks like it? >> that can't be good. >> bill: caution, you where to enter the no spin zone, the factor begins right now. >> bill: hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching the first show in 2013. happy new year. president obama's true agenda emerges that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. you may have noticed the factor has not covered the fiscal debate very much. not going to use that cliche, not going to say it that's because it was a fake crisis as the "wall street journal" says today in its lead editorial. the deal congress struck last night could have been done last august. but the politicians in both parties wanted to posture it. setting up phony scenarios for their own personal enaggrandizement. here is really what's going on. president obama has succeeded in raising taxes on every working american. every one of us. those who are doing well will now pay close to 50% income to the feds. those making below $400,000 a year
john boehner has had permanent damage done to him by the failure to pass plan b, the way he was ultimately kind of on the sidelines of the negotiations. winners, two, joe biden and mitch mcconnell, proving as they did with the debt ceiling and in 2010 with the bush tax cuts, they know how to get things done. >> luke, let's talk first about the breakdown of the vote. in the house vote last night, only 85 republicans voted for this deal. the speaker, as you pointed out last night, showed some guts in actually voting for it. >> speakers ordinarily don't necessarily vote. sometimes they vote on big bills, but especially with this big vote where he knew cantor and mccarthy were going to vote against it. he made a decision he should be on the yes side of this, for whatever reason, for conversations i've had, look, he wanted to be out in front to tell his republican colleagues this is the best deal they could get in this situation and wanted to put the tax issue to bed finally and felt his support was much needed to be shown, especially after what mitch mcconnell did in the senate
, it's disheartening to hear speaker boehner say he is not going to negotiate with the president because boy, as you guys know, we didn't resolve anything with the deal that averted the fiscal cliff, temporarily avert ready the cliff. we didn't solve a bloody thing. the tough decisions lie ahead and not just on sequester around not just on continuing resolution, budget, the debt ceiling, but on guns, on energy, on infrastructure, on education, on immigration. and we are going to need a congress and a president that are going to roll up his sleeves and work together and act as adults, boy, that's no way to start off. that's really discouraging statement. just as an american, forget as a democrat. as an american, that is just is very sad. >> and let's dig in a little bit more to speaker boehner. former speak eer hastert, the mt pass with the majority of the majority role was talking about the fact they had to pass the fiscal cliff deem without a majority of the majority and he said, hastert said maybe you can do it once, maybe you can do it twice but when you start cutting deals wh
within 48 hours. >> speaker john boehner voted for the deal, breaking the republican leaders eric cantor of virginia and kevin mccarthy of california who voted against. paul ryan joined speaker boehner, voting for the bill. after the vote, president obama tried to set the terms for the fiscal fights ahead in a rare late-night appearance with joe biden by his side in the briefing room. >> the one thing that i think hopefully in the new year we'll focus on is seeing if we can put a package like this together, with a little bit less drama, a little less brinksmanship, not scare the heck out of folks quite as much. >> but republicans are already looking ahead to another budget showdown in late february. that's when the temporary delay on domestic and military spending cuts expires and when congress must raise the $16.4 trillion debt ceiling limit to avoid default. >> save your powder for the debt ceiling fight. we have leverage at the debt ceiling to make this president face up to the fact that we're spending our way into oblivion. >> last night, the president warned republicans not to use t
.. boehner of the state o ohio having received a majority of thevo votes cast is duly elected the speaker of the representatives for the 113th congress. >>> all right, good evening, everyone. i'm larry kudlow. this is "the kudlow report." the new sizzle, the republican john boehner. hung on to his speakership despite some challenges and some tense moments on the floor of the house. and he keeps his job as speaker. but where does he go from here? has the battle over the debt ceiling and a possible government shutdown are all around the corner. but the gop has nothing but fiscal problems ahead of itself. nothing but problems. a few moments ago, new texas senator ted cruise told me that a government shutdown should be on the negotiating table that's what cruise said. >>> plus, we go out to san francisco, the middle east backed news network al jazeera is buying al gore's current tv for a whopping 500 million bucks. many believe al jazeera is nothing but pro-terrorist and anti-american and should not have a foot hold in the usa. >>> all right. first up tonight, high tension on capitol hill. ho
" blasting john boehner for delaying the vote on -- no reason to do it. they're not delaying the vote on relief, of course for the victims of hurricane sandy. what do they need more? they need more evidence there was a lot of damage done there. haven't they been watching television? maybe they should have gotten on the plane with president obama and toward the area with governor christie. by the way, i was reminded yesterday, my favorite memorial here in washington, after the lincoln memorial, is the fdr memorial. etched on the walls of that, some great statement by president roosevelt. this one always struck me. the test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much, it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little. boy, republicans certainly flunked that test again today. peter, what's going on? >> on the christie press conference, we're tweeting at bpshow. you can find us there at bpshow on twitter. travis moss says governor chris 'tis's problem as a republican
from that that the republicans would use. as speaker john boehner has said. the fact that we have passed a record number of bills the swell of congress. the we are not increasing taxes and that is one way of looking at it. it has a record low popularity approval rating -- this is a congress that is defined by dysfunction and gridlock. a congress in which and it is a policy point to the delivering body. >> for the people that have ascended to positions of leadership, do you think that they believe that they were elected to not do things as opposed to do things? >> i refer to the tea party class of the congress, they believe they will do precisely what they were elected to do, which is to roll back all obama initiatives and cut spending a lot of them thought that the debt ceiling should not be increased. basically they believe that their job is to obstruct barack obama and then once there is a republican president in place, to have a better business climate with more deregulation or the funding of programs that have never quite been near and dear to them. yes, i think they do believ
